Abstract:
Highlights issues surrounding the escape from a Union Carbide pesticide manufacturing plant, of 20 tons of deadly methyl isocyanate (MIC) gas into the atmosphere around Bhopal, India, just after mid-night on December 3, 1984. The fumes killed more than 3,500 people and affected 800,000 people, according to official figures, while other estimates put the number of dead at 30,000. This DVD examines a variety of issues surrounding failures in known, extant systems, and goes on to address issues of global enterprise and compensation problems that arise from cultural and financial exchange disparities. The ethics of the global marketplace in general provides an interesting and provocative backdrop to the disaster, and it should be noted that issues associated with the Bhopal event are still being fought in courtrooms in 2010 – 26 years later. Support materials are supplied on CD. This includes: - Facilitator's guide, including facilitator's checklist - Facilitator's slide guide - Participants' handouts and powerpoint presentation. Written by Avie Luthra and Steven Condie. Narrated by Indira Varma. 59 minutes.
